In view of the Red Alert issued on Ghana after the Westgate bombing in Kenya, has become necessary for the Ghana Red Cross Society to be in preparedness to respond to similar emergencies should they occur in the country.

As a result three (3) Regional Emergency Response Teams has been trained in how to address issue on disaster response and established in Accra, Kumasi and Cape Coast.

This is to ensure rapid response to emergencies in the respective cities. The Teams are also equipped with Red Cross branded jackets for visibility as well as first aid kits. The training of these volunteers was supported by the International Committee of Red Cross.
